Colombia sits on the north end of the South American continent, serving as an almost connector to lands near it (Panama, Venuezela, and Ecaudor being it's closest neighbors). Colombia has huge and busy cities like Bogota, Medellin, and Cartagena, and yet the landscape of the country is incredibly deverse. There are desert areas and mountaineous regions, clear waters and starry nights. The country has produced some of the most talented artists, writers, and poets, and it totally makes sense considering the beauty that they grew up around. There are a few places that can give you an initial taste of Colombia. Visit the Tatacoa desert, El Peñón de Guatapé, or the Chichamocha canyon. Of course, these places are only the start to an amazing journey in one of the world's most beautiful countries.
